Lake O’Hara Fall Colours

Fall colours in Banff National Park doesn’t have the same range of colours that can be seen in Ontario.  I didn’t realize this before I visited.  Larches are the most common form of tree in the Lake O’Hara area and they only change colour to yellow.

It’s still impressive especially at key times of the day and when they’re back-lit.  We spent the Saturday on an 8 mile hike with plenty of ascents and descents.  I highlight this because the highest point we reached was only 250 metres above our starting height… and that doesn’t feel like the same journey that wiped me out.

The hike took us to just over Hungabee Lake and Moor Lake then back to the farther side of Lake O’Hara.
